Quick Smoke: Nording Robusto Maduro

4 Mar 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

If you take a look at our Archived Reviews page, you’ll notice that we’ve rated Rocky Patel cigars very well. And rightly so. But what about Nording, Rocky’s stepchild? Well, this five and ½ inch by 52 ring gauge stogie is pretty respectable. The blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos produces a spicy, oily smoke. And at less than $4 per stick when you buy in bulk, the Robusto Maduro is a lot easier on the pocketbook than a Vintage 1990. Go ahead and give these a try.

Verdict = Buy.

  1. The Stogie Review » Nording by Rocky Patel - Friday, March 30, 2007

    […] The Nording by Rocky Patel had an attractive aroma right off the bat and quickly filled the room with a nice roasted coffee aroma. No problems with burn and the Nording had an easy draw. I did notice that it did burn a little fast even when it was resting. Flavor profile consisted of rich sweet coca, roasted nuts and had a spicey finish. The Stogie Guys featured this in one of the weekend quick smokes and mentioned that it was am affordable alternative to the RP Vintage 1990. I’m a big fan of the RP Connecticut and to me, The Nording by Rocky Patel is a richer, full bodied experience of the RP Connecticut. […]
